The Positive Accountant - Vol 3 Ed15

Warning - Dangerous HMRC Scam

I have this evening received an email purportedly from HMRC, it is headed 'Important Application - You're eligible for the fifth grants'.

It goes on to talk about the next level of SEISS grants for self employed.

I was suspicious because I didn't claim for grants 1-4 and HMRC didn't contact me about any of them.

Reading it very closely gives a few little clues, eg HMRC do not tend to sign emails 'Best Regards'

But it is otherwise pretty plausible and requires you to enter your HMRC online credentials and password from the link it helpfully provides...

If you receive such an email, Delete it without clicking on the link..
